Guestbook comments from the owner

rating: 5 stars

I have grown up vacationing in West Palm Beach and this is a FANTASTIC rental in an amazing location! The description and photos are all accurate, in fact I would say the apartment looks even nicer in person. Not only is the location very clean, but absolutely everything you might need is available, from beach towels and bed sheets to pots and pans. (and MUCH much more) Naturally we were a little skeptical about booking from another city and country, but the entire process was very professional and easy. Unfortunately we weren't there long enough to hang out in the Tiki area or pool, but fingers crossed for a return stay!

In short, I would absolutely recommend this spot to a friend - whether young or old - as it is a comfortable distance away from everything you need: A short walk to city place, a 10 minute walk to Clematis street, and a 5 minute drive to the beaches, which I've always preferred to drive to in order to cart beach umbrellas, a cooler and beyond. Again, highly recommended! Thanks Jim!

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5
The property is very clean and well-maintained. The owner and his partner are very nice. The pool is wonderful and the bar just cute.

I rated only 4 stars because of the railway which is only a couple of feets away. At night there are at least 2 - 3 trains passing by. In a 2 weeks stay you can not get used to it so are awake every time. But this really is the only negative.

Owner's Response: Thanks Anke, I am glad you enjoyed the apartment itself. The railway is actually a block or so away. With the windows open the train horns are louder, but most the time the windows are closed and the a/c on in the apartment making it less noticeable. The neighborhood association and the City are working on getting the quiet zone reinstated which will help quit a bit.

Charming, clean, and covienent apartment with a relaxing private patio and pool. Able to walk to City Place easily for lunch and cab ride to Downtown Clematis Street was under $10! My dog loved it too. Thank you for not discriminating against large breeds or bully breeds!

Carriage House in Palm Beach

  • 3 of 5
This property was in a nice historic neighborhood; close to City Place and several grocery stores. It was very clean and quaint. It had a homey, old-fashioned feel, as if I was visiting my grandma. The kitchen was small but well stocked with everything needed to cook or bake. There were plenty of towels, extra sheets, and blankets. The outside patio was very nice with great lighting at night. The owner was helpful and kind. However, I was a little dismayed to find upon arrival that he rescues cats and that all of them (at least 6) reside in the patio area around the pool. I am not a cat lover and was at least thankful that no one in my family is allergic, since I wasn't warned. I did have to listen to one of them hack up a fur ball one evening while I was trying to sit outside...not really my idea of a good time. Two other things I was surprised by; the railroad tracks that reside about 100 yards from the property (very loud trains run about 8-10 times in 24 hours, many at night), and the windows didn't really open. They were older crank out panels and many of them also had some sort of plastic covers that don't allow the air to pass or for you to look outside. If you are a cat lover and you want a decent place to stay for a good price, I would recommend it.

Owner's Response: The Carriage House apartment is described as an historic 1930s apartment with the original claw foot tub and sinks; the furnishings and flooring and decor are much newer. The photos clearly show what the apartment looks like.
There are cats that I have rescued on the property, they do not go inside the apartment and for the most part shy away from strangers, they come around during feeding time and afterwards usually hide out and sleep. I am proud of the compassion I have towards discarded and unwanted animals and have brought most of them back to health after they showed up with great injury or sickness, I also take the responsibility to have them fixed and given their shots. One of the cats was sick with a head cold and was sneezing and coughing but was on antibiotics and is feeling much better now. A previous guest was concerned about the cats because she was allergic but upon departure she told me that it was not an issue. The cats were mentioned in other reviews and if one’s dislike of them would be a deciding factor in choosing a place to stay than one should not choose a pet-friendly accommodation.
This guest was concerned about the train when she first arrived because she said she was afraid that it would wake up her daughter’s baby, but later she told me that the trains never woke up the sleeping baby.
This guest stayed here during hurricane season and in Florida hurricane preparation is very important. Some of the windows have plastic hurricane panels on them, but in each of the rooms there is one large window that is uncovered and can be opened. With the apartment being on the 2nd floor it generally gets good air flow. This guest had nothing but nice things to say when she departed but the day she found out that I was deducting a small amount from her deposit for missing items, she wrote this review.

Great Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5
The time I spent at the Carriage House was amazing. The house is very organized and beautiful. The house is also comfortable and is wonderful for anyone. Cats are very friendly. This was my second time staying at the Carriage House. I would love to stay here every time I go to Florida.
